What Suppliers Are Saying: Inside the 2010 OB10-IARP AR Survey.

OB10, the leading global e-Invoicing network, recently hosted a webinar which provided participants with best practices and tools to help Accounts Receivable professionals positively influence collections results and improve DSO. The webinar was co-hosted by International Accounts Receivable Professionals (IARP), a not-for-profit guidance-setting association for the accounts receivable profession.

The session included insights from a panel of accounts receivable professionals from OfficeMax, Ascent Healthcare Solutions and Custom Coils. The panelists discussed trends impacting accounts receivable professionals and steps their respective organizations are taking in response to the economic downturn. Ernie Martin, North American Marketing Manager for OB10, hosted the webinar.

The panel also discussed the results of the 2010 OB10-IARP Accounts Receivable Survey, covering topics such as collections, invoicing and the economy. According to the survey results, 71 percent of respondents said they had received requests from their customers in 2009 to invoice them electronically, with 42 percent saying they had received more requests in 2009 than in previous years. AR professionals view this positively, as 82 percent who received requests believe that submitting invoices electronically expedites the collections process.
